E-mails. I get e-mails

Okay, so no one posts comments but boy do I get the e-mails. People, the song from yesterday was NOT me endorsing this type of destructive, revenge-seeking behavior. I like the song because it's a good way to VICARIOUSLY fulfill all those destructive urges that we all have when we've been hurt by someone we thought cared about us. I like the IDEA of occsionally IMAGINING that I am not bound by laws/religious beliefs/guilt, etc. and can therefore freely pursue the whole revenge thing.

But, in the end, I AM bound by all those things as well as an underlying logical voice that tells me behavior like this may possibly buy me a nanosecond of relief while I'm engaging in it, but it will never make the pain go away long-term. Therefore, it's not really of any actual use to me.

I hate logic. It's a pain in the butt. It does, however, keep me out of jail. Which is a good thing.

Oh, and the other reason I like the song is that Carrie Underwood just sings the ever-lovin' daylights out of it. Now that IS empowering!

KJ - who suddenly feels like belting out a few choruses of Aretha's "R-E-S-P-E-C-T" C'mon, who's with me?

Right, because of course we all understand that you're exactly the type of person who'd actually act out on words to a song. Better not read any books or see any movies that depict violence on a lying, cheating, goodfornothing piece of doodoo...because heaven knows you may not be able to restrain those urges. Sheesh.

"lying, cheating, goodfornothing piece of doodoo..."

And deadbeat. Don't forget deadbeat.

Hey, if a deadbeat were to have to join the community service groups on the freeways picking up trash...I mean, what else do they have to do all day?...and my car accidentally swerved...that's not violence...that's just an accident.
